When you come to the Marcus Dental Practice in the Chicago Loop, we do far more than clean your teeth. Dentistry is just one part of overall health, which is why we also check for potentially harmful diseases such as cancer. How do we do it? With our VELscope® system.
How it Works
During your examination, your dentist will use the VELscope device to detect any abnormalities in your oral tissues. VELscope uses a safe blue light to illuminate your mouth; Dr. Marcus then uses a special lense to detect cellular changes that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
Why You Should Be Screened
Oral cancers are easily treated if caught early, which is why regular dental exams are so important. If you skip your semi-annual appointments, you run the risk of not being diagnosed. Visit your dentist regularly not only to keep your teeth strong and healthy, but to also enjoy a happy, healthy life.
